I was busy tonight and put tons of ride photos up in the photo gallery. I'm still working on the Mr. Miyagi Memorial ride...913 photos over 4 days by 6 photographers to place in order...so cut me some slack!

Jack stuck in June!

The first annual Mr. Miyagi Memorial ride is a wrap! What great fun, incredible/insane riding and a fitting tribute to Terry Reid..aka Mr. Miyagi.

We covered 3 campsites and 15 or so people over 4 days at Meadow Lake. What an awesome weekend. We had freezing cold nights, snow and beautiful sunny warm weather all in 24 hours!

The highlight of the riding was Thomas Opre, from Tahoe Films, who flew out from Montana to film us rock crawling for his next video, Mountains and Mud II. We took Thomas all over the Fordyce area and filmed in several locations along the trail. On Friday evening, we watched Mountains and Mud I. On Saturday night, about 10 of us crowded around the fire and watched Sled Heads II. I highly recommend both DVD's! Sled Heads 2 has the most insane opening sequence and 60 minutes of just unreal scenery, that is just beautifully shot.

Here's a shot of Thomas shooting me going up this ridiculous rock face....

The highlight of the trip, was passing around Terry's helmet in a moment of reflection on each person's memory of Terry. He would have HATED IT! Sorry dude.

Hope to see you next year at the second annual, Sept 14-17, 2007.

There is riding for ALL available. Trail riding, exploring, cemetaries, mines, fishing and hardcore rock crawling. Thomas Opre from Tahoe Films will be there to film some hardcore stuff. So come to meet Thomas and get more information on his DVD's.

Unlike some other "ATV" websites.....WE ACTUALLY RIDE and then we bring back the photos and vids to get you fired up! This past weekend, was the Mina, Nevada ride. Obviously, I didn't go...thanks Chadd....but Larry, Bill, Dave, D2 and more did go....and they took lots of photos. So look for those soon.

One of the cool things about the desert, is there's lots of old cool stuff that people do, or just don't feel like bringing home. Like ...cars. So what do you do?

Zuki needs some Polaris weight to crush properly. :)

I'd been meaning to do this for a long time. The news page was growing longer and longer. But...finally, some one on another "ATV" website, reiterated that the page was too long. So since I had downtime with the ankle, I decided to fix it.

So check out the top...there's now a link to the archived News Pages for 2005 and 2004. So you newbies, take a stroll down memory lane and get with the program.

Chadd was at the Boreal Sled races....so Dusty, Kenan and I headed up....and I ended up with a REALLY bad day.

Photos on the photo page.

Big air in the stunt show.

Recently, I had to head out to Mammoth Mountain for the Far West Ski Racing Championships. I had driven to Mammoth before, but only from the LA direction and it was at night. So, while driving home I couldn't resist snapping off some pictures of the drive back on 395. 395 is the most scenic highway in California, hands down.

Here are the photos to prove it.

Additionally, check out the infamous Dusy-Ershim trail photos. I say "infamous", because I snapped over 100 photos myself and quite frankly, had some of the funniest and coolest shots ever. Unfortunately, Jack is the only human other than myself to see them. The night I finished them, and I showed them to Jack, I went to bed to finish the next day. When I woke up, my hard drive had a fatal error. Gone.

Steve Jackson from Montana Jacks says:

"thanks for all your efforts in creating such a great web site as ATV Obsession"

"I am totally impressed and have been very well entertained"

"I have just spent at least an hour and a half checking this site out."

What? Whoa there....only an hour and half?? We've spent WAY more than 90 minutes on your site....you have some catching up to do!

Thanks for stopping by.....more videos and pictures to come after ski season...I promise.

Mr. Bill and Larry were hard at work...scouring the net for the latest and greatest...manuals! (Yawn).

When you finally come to, go ahead and download:

Polaris Sportsman 800 EFI

Suzuki King Quad LT-A700x

Blame those 2 guys, for bumping the fine shot of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition down the page...

Larry, Dusty and I tried to head back to Yuba Gap....LOL...Not. Bummer, cause we were prepared for Ice Racing too!! It was snowing in Auburn. So we decided to go to the area around Grass Valley(Washington and Graniteville).

Things didn't quite go this smoothly.... Check out the photos and video.

Larry (oldtrucks) and I went for a ride in the finest powder, I've seen in the Sierra's in years. It was so dry and fluffy, that you couldn't even make a snowball.

As you can see....I didn't adapt to the situation very well. I think I may need therapy.

Photos are up!

Still don't have EFI? Well, neither do I. So if you want more performance at higher altitudes, install a DynoJet kit for your Polaris ATV.

Check out our installation and our step by step instructions.
